Mom's Cookies

When I was growing up, my mom hung this image on the wall in my bathroom. There were four bears. Three of them looked exactly the same, but the fourth bear on the far right had a little bow tie. Underneath the bears it said:

Be yourself. An original is better than a copy.

It was just a little image on the wall. But it helped. I still have it, in a box, in my basement. And I feel better knowing it's there.

My mom also hung multiplication tables in my bathroom. But the bears spoke louder.
